Lexus LC review - Practicality, comfort and boot space

Rear space is limited in the LC, so the car is best suited to two people – and it has boot space to match

Size

At 4770mm long and 1920mm wide, the LC isn’t a small car. Yet, not much of that seems to be translated to room inside the cabin.

Leg room, head room & passenger space

Although the LC is billed as a 2+2, in practice it’s far better to think of it as a two-seater and treat the two rear seats as nothing more than extended luggage space. Because it's so cramped back there, you’ll struggle to get anyone in the rear seats unless the driver and passenger are willing to make a big compromise on their own legroom.

For those in the front, though, things are fine. There’s good leg, head and shoulder space, as well as comfy seats – trimmed in Alcantara and leather on the Sport Pack and Sport+ Pack models – but not a huge amount of cubby space around the cabin.

Boot

If you’re not expecting a huge amount of luggage space in the LC, you won’t be disappointed – there’s only 197 litres in the boot of the V8 model, and that drops to 172 litres in the hybrid because of the battery pack under the boot floor. At least it isn't too difficult to load, as – in spite of a high lip – it’s a wide space.
